If you love that book so much, why don’t you marry it?

I’ve used anatomy illustrations which I have lovingly colored in, to show ideas here on this blog, and I want to share again how great the source of the material is. The book I have is Kapit and Elson’s Anatomy Coloring Book, and I learn something new every time I look at it. It was… Continue reading If you love that book so much, why don’t you marry it?
